Excellent news. Anything that would lower the cost of entry is a step forward.

The Raspberry Pi is very popular, but I doubt it is suitable for education: It runs Linux, which is a highly complex piece of software. Beginners should learn from ground up, for example using AVR assembly, then C, first fundamentally understanding the machine, the peripherals, and storage. THEN it may make sense to debate which distribution is the best. Ardurinos are more suitable 'cause closer to the metal.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
